  Catawba FarmFest  
(Special Event)

Virginia Tech cosponsors Catawba FarmFest Aug. 31

A three-day mucsic festival at the Virginia Tech Catawba Sustainability Center Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 will feature Acoustic Syndicate and other Bands, cosponsored by Virginia Tech Roanoke Center and Half Acre Promotions.

Brief talks on sustainability and other issues related to farming and the environment will take place throughout the weekend.

"I'm excited to be launching the first Catawba FarmFest in part because it fits so well with the mission of the Catawba Sustainability Center, which is a showcase for land-management practices that promote environmental stewardship," says Kay Dunkley, Roanoke Center director. "The music promises to be great, with a range of bands and music styles including blues, rock, bluegrass and even gospel."

Other bands in the lineup include Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Wayne Henderson, Papadosio, Corey Harris, and the Rasta Blues Experience, Kat Mills, and the NO BS Brass Band.

Camping will be available on the grounds of the Catawba Sustainability Center, which is situated on 377 acres in the Catawba Valley approximately 20 minutes by car from Roanoke. The festival will also feature vendors offering local foods.

Ticket prices, directions and other details about the festival can be found on the festival website. For more information about the FarmFest, please contact Eric Langston at 540-557-7012 or Anita Bevins at 540-460-6191.

Admission is $80 for the weekend, but starts at $25 dollars per day.
